Trend Alert: Showing the Sexy One Shoulder

Despite the cold weather coming our way, this new trend involves showing off a little bit of skin. A major trend for the fall 2017 season is the one shoulder where a top will show a classy amount of shoulder. I personally think this look could be sophisticated yet casual at the same time. Here are a few outfits that you can style after if you dare to rock that shoulder.

 This is one of my favorite outfits for just a day out or when you don’t want to wear Nike shorts to class anymore. I love this simple white top and cut off as it gives a laid back look. I added Adidas shoes for comfort and to give it some edge.

Of course, I cannot do a trend without having a sexy outfit! I love this bodycon one sleeve top with a choker built in. With it being a high neck top I would style it with a ponytail. My favorite fall color is burgundy so I wanted to incorporate it a little bit as well as a few gold accents. My styling tip is to try to match your shoes with your bag so the outfit is not all over the place!

When I first saw this top I was absolutely in love! Since the top had a lot going on I wanted to style it with plain bottoms, so I added some culottes and some nude heels. Since there was not a lot of color to the outfit, I added the colorful clutch to give it more of a fun twist to it. This outfit is great if you’re going to a function, it’s sophisticated yet fun!

I wanted to create another casual outfit so I found this gingham print dress which is so adorable! I am a minimalistic dresser so I just added a sweet necklace and some white, lace up espadrilles. This is an outfit you can wear to a picnic or just to walk around a city (especially in Europe). Since the straw bag was rather popular in the summer I thought it would make the look more laid back.

I absolutely love this dress! If you have stayed with me these past few years I have been a huge fan of lace! The cut cutouts in the middle make the dress a little bit sexy and make me which I had the body and the place to wear this to! I love a good smokey eye and tousled hair to give it a relaxed look to it.
Remember that trends may come and go but always stay true to your original style. I hope you have fun with this trend and I hope to see you in my next post! I am so glad to be back!

Trend Alert: Off the Shoulder

One of my favorite trends right now is the off the shoulder look. I find this look to be sophisticated yet edgy at the same time. Shoulders have been considered scandalous, mostly at my school, for the longest time and it is time to show some skin.

Burnt orange is a big color for the summer and this outfit reminds me of something that I would wear if I was visiting a beach in another country. I like adding a few pieces of jewelry so the focus is not taken away from the dress. I love the hat how it adds a bit of a bohemian touch to it so I decided to add a bag and shoes to match it.

This is a different type of style, known as the ‘cold shoulder’. I love the top of the dress it is quite different with unique colors. I like to match shoes with the bags. I imagine this dress being worn on the islands of Greece just enjoying the view. With a high ponytail, the hoop earrings will look amazing with the outfit.

 This look is a bit edgy with the ripped shorts and the black shoes. This is something that I might possibly wear to a music festival or just a night out to town. I love the top with the lacey details as it contrasts with the rest of the outfit to give it a soft touch.

 This outfit is also different as the off the shoulder trend is on a romper. I love the bright colors that are perfect for spring and summer, especially the blue is huge for the season. I love blue and to be able to add color to this outfit, it creates the perfect touch. Since the shoes have gold metal, I decided to add a few pieces of accessories that match the metals. The beach hat also adds a fun touch to it.

This a casual outfit where the floral top juxtaposes distressed boyfriend jeans. I added espadrilles because they are easy and fun to wear. Espadrilles are the perfect summer shoes because they do not have to horrible to wear in such hot conditions.
I absolutely love this trend and you will be able to find similar items at Urban Outfitters, Zara, Forever 21 and many more!

Oscar 2014 Best Dressed

Lupita Nyong’o has been on everyone’s style radar for the past award season and I from all of her gowns so far, this one is my absolute favorite of hers and of the Oscars ever. She deserves her Oscar, even if I have never seen “12 Years a Slave”. I love how she is different from all other actresses, she is unique and I cannot wait to see more of her.

rs_634x1024-140302203519-634.idina-mendzel-oscars-030214Having watched Idina Menzel on Glee and watching her take over Elsa on Frozen, she is something special. I absolutely this dreamer dress (I call it a dreamer dress as it seems like what belongs in a fairy-tale) more than her outfit on the red carpet.

Not a big fan of the color, is it blood orange? I would like it to be pure red, but Jennifer Lawrence is a stunner! Especially her date last night (the guy who played Tony Stonem on Skins).

The texture on Sandra Bullock’s dress is amazing. I love the small simple touches with the bracelet and the earrings!

Alis in 2013

I started this blog about early September of 2012 for a try in fashion and writing, I was not very into fashion back then but I wanted to see where it would lead me. I also had been writing poems, and reviews for my school newspaper that I dream of inspiring others through difficult times (but there is not that many posts about that on here).
Alis is like my name Elyse (A-lees) but I did not give that blog a name until later. It was actually the name the Starbucks person put on my first drink from there after I had freshmen orientation. I guess by ordering a drink from a popular place could lead into this, or it was the only idea I had to change my name. I had a blog post about the name change a while ago but I don’t feel like finding it oh well.
So as I sit here inside the little place where we are staying in the mountains of Colorado, while stars like Christina Aguilera, Shaun White and Leonardo DiCaprio are skiing (I’m literally sore from my lesson yesterday that I could not even walk back to the condo and I can barely even walk around, so don’t be like “girl what are you doing inside for writing this post about”) I would like to share my favorite posts of the year before 2013 closes.
I would like to saw thank you to everyone who has followed me, read my posts or get annoyed by my posts on instagram and twitter, you have made me all so happy as I have gotten over 2,160 + views and over 100 posts. A few websites have contacted with me about my outfits and I hope that soon, that you guys can get the courage to be my buddy (or not but that is perfectly cool because like, I really don’t know how to interact with others through online). Anyway, I should start rambling and share my favorite posts of the year that either inspire others or I absolutely loved the outfits, pictures or writings that I have shared with everyone of you!

I hope everyone of you has an awesome new year and hope 2014 treats us all well. I am currently in Colorado so I do not have any fancy as I did not think I should have brought something for New Years. So I might watch the fireworks in town or watch the Doctor Who episode that I have been trying to watch! Oh well, have a nice and safe New Year.

Christmas Haul

Hey everyone! I wanted to upload a post before I leave! I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope that Father Christmas treated you well! I won’t be able to update until after the New Year so I decided to show you guys what I got for Christmas. I would like to say that Christmas is about family and celebrating the birth of our Savoir (I respect that everyone believes in what they believe or not). But since this is a fashion account, I got a few fashion items!

015
The leather jacket is from American Eagle. It has a quilted pattern which is absolutely trendy!

017 018
My family knows how much I love photography so my mom got me a camera charm for a Fossil necklace that will come soon or I can use it for my Pandora bracelet.

020
I probably annoyed my mom about how much I wanted this book for the flight and I literally wanted to go to Anthropologie to use my gift card to use this Christmas Eve.

006 007 009

I literally thought this little jewelry holder is unique! It is like a weathervane. I have looked up this collection on PBTeen and I absoltely want everything from the Emily and Merrit Collection there! Everything is so magical and whimsical and ugh it is like killing me that I can’t get everything there!

I also got some sweets from Crate & Barrel (including a marshmallow snowman)! I guess I’ll wait until I get home to eat them!

When I get back I will probably have heaps of posts about my trip so stay tuned!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Sweeter Than Fiction

007

Recently I have been writing a lot lately. I have been trying to participate in NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month). My story is about a princess who is knows nothing about the outside world, suddenly being shipped off into a place she has not heard of before to be protected from a threat towards her family.
Books have been my life ever since I was little. Always wanting to go adventure like Belle from Beauty and the Beast. To know what is out there. I believe that I have known a thousand lives to and through. As much as I would love to live a happily ever after like most stories, not all lives are easy. Harry Potter was a unloved kid living under the stairs, Katniss Everdeen had suffered so much during the Hunger Games, but if they could fight with everything they got everything will get better.
Sweeter than Fiction is a song by Taylor Swift, which I believe is one of the songs I have on repeat. To me, the title means that books are fun and all but they don’t compare to live which is real. Books end but lives continue.

Excuse my awkward face.
